Honestly, can a music concept get more interesting than Drawing Voices? We doubt it. But beyond its theoretical aims, the music contained is also awesome: as organic as it is electronic; mellow and minimal at times; with moments of obvious volume-push abrasiveness. This self-titled release is an appropriate stepping stone for the Double-H Noise family. And since it’s a new year—we at Hydra Head Industries enjoy congratulating ourselves—let’s say that said imprint is responsible for groundbreaking releases by SUNN 0))), Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Merzbow, Everylovely Lightning Heart, Phanthomsmasher and many more.Of course, if that’s not enough to lure in our rabid fan base, the contributions of Aaron Turner to the disc’s sonic explorations ought to do the trick. His treated guitar textures might remind listeners of his guitarist-as-Magellan travels with House of Low Culture and The Lotus Eaters.
